Locked out of Server 2008 R2

Posted on 2014-08-09
Last Modified: 2014-08-09
Server 2008 R2 was a member server in Server 2003 Standard domain. I created a new domain when adding Active Directory but it didn't prompt me for users on the new domain other than Directory Services Restore Mode Admin.

Consequently I can't logon to new domain. F8 sends me to a Bitlocker Recovery Key screen rather than DSR Admin.

How can I get into server? Can I establish trust on the Server 2003 side?
